  1. Wow, what a cool site! I grew up in Duluth and I always have been interested in the variety of retail outlets and their locations here. I’m always curious about plans for new stores in the Duluth area but never knew of any single place that could tell me all of this information, until now. I am glad to hear about the new plans for Best Buy, Dick’s Sporting Goods, and that new hotel down on Park Point. I had no knowledge of these projects prior to finding this site. I am looking forward to many posts about retail development in Duluth.

  2. Hey I love your site! I’m wondering if you know what is going on a couple sites in Superior. There’s something going up between O’Neill’s Pub & Liquor and Napa on Tower Ave. There’s also a lot of demolition going on on the corner of Tower and 28th. Just curious if there’s something exciting going up. Thanks!

    1. Hello there Luke!
      Thanks for following the blog! I am still checking out what could possibly be going on between O’Neill’s Pub & Liquor and Napa Auto Parts. I wasn’t aware that anything had started on that site. However, it would not surprise me if it was some sort of bank or fast food joint due to the size and orientation of the site. I’ll keep searching to see if I can find out anymore information for you. As far as what is going on on the corner of Tower Avenue and 28th Street regarding the demolition, that is to make way for the new CVS store that will be opening on that site in September. Once again thanks for following cdinduluth!

  3. I had heard rumor of a new Subway with a drive thru next to Napa, to replace the one in the strip mall, but not sure how true. I noticed today, however, that now that they are starting the walls of the business, it almost looks like framing for several garage doors vs. large windows?? Anyone have any other updates on that location? Also, I noticed they are doing work on or very close to the old Dollar Store building next to Walmart off of Tower Avenue. Anyone know what is going on there?

  4. Are you referring to the Subway off Grand Avenue? The building they are building next to Napa Auto Parts in West Duluth off of Grand Avenue and N 46th Avenue West is a new CVS Pharmacy.

  5. Hi there,
    First time to this site and it’s pretty cool. Thanks! I’ve heard that someone has now bought both the Ground Round and the Verizon Wireless up by the Miller Mall that was damaged by the flood. Anyone know who this person or place might be? Again, thanks!

    1. Thanks for visiting! The purchasers are a development company out of Florida who plan to build a retail center on the site. Tenants that are speculated to open in the site are Verizon Wireless, Mattress Firm, The Vitamin Shoppe, and Starbucks.
